In response to the crocodile/taxidermy of monkey question, I don't think that is a taxidermied monkey. It appears to me that it is a figurine of some sort of cloaked evil man that just happens to be portrayed by a monkey. It's one of those edgy figurines you'd find in a music shop I dunno. Reminds me of Binky in that episode where he can't stop rhyming. Bottom line I think that's a cloak, not skin.
